[p4] Adding with wildcards

I'm trying to do this from within an integration that we're writing for 
our asset-control tool.  In regards to Melissa's point, intermediate 
files will not be a part of this directory.  I was only using the 
commandline p4 example as an attempt to show what I want to do.  :)

But it's looking like there isn't anything built into the P4 API that 
will support that.  I can just search the directories myself and bake 
them into the add arguments, I was just hoping that there was something 
that could do it for me.

Thanks for your help!
